    Discuss: Is it time to upgrade your BlackBerry microSD memory card?

    Today, I looked at my BlackBerry Bold 9900, turned it over, opened the back cover door, and took a look at my microSD memory card.

    Most BlackBerry devices can support 2, 4, 8, 16, and up to 32GB only microSD memory card to expand the amount of memory available in your device.

    Some BlackBerry devices will already come with built-in memory, such as 512MB, 1GB, 4GB, or 8GB, depending on the model in question.

    My BlackBerry Bold 9900, which has 8GB of internal memory, has the ability of adding an extra (maximum of 32GB) for a total of 40GB of memory!!

    Depending on your BlackBerry device, you can insert a microSD card into your smartphone to take videos, songs, ring tones, videos, or pictures, and increase the storage space that's available on your smartphone.

    How many songs can be stored on your microSD memory card?

    This chart is just an approx. depending on the length of track, quality, and bitrate.

    512MB 1GB 2GB 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB
    Number of songs 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 8000 16000 32000


    How cool is that!

    Currently, I have a PNY 16GB Class 10 microSD memory card installed, and today I upgraded to a Patriot LX Signature Series 32GB Class 10 microSDHC Flash Card (Part # PSF32GMCSDHC10)

    Complies with SDA 3.0 specifications High level of copy protection Compatible with MicroSDHC slot devices Write protection switch to avoid accidental data deletion Voltage: 2.7 - 3.6V Operating Temperature: -25C to 85C Storage Temperature: -40 to 85C Meets and exceeds 10mb/sec. sustained write speed adapter included

    Some of these numbers may have you scratching your head, so here's what all this means in plain English.

    Class 10 is referring to the (Write) Speed Class Rating, so a Class 2 means the microSD card write speeds at 2MB/second, Class 4 is 4MB/second, and class 6 is 6MB/second, and so on.

    The higher the Speed Class Rating, the faster the card, and the higher the price, of course.

    Here is an actual picture of the Patriot microSD 32GB card I purchased today.

    Here's some links I found which are very useful for BlackBerry users, everything you ever wanted to know;



    Thank you for letting me share this with you, hopefully you have a better understanding of the differences about microSD cards, their class speeds, and everything else in between.

    I may edit this thread in the future to either update, add newer links, or more current information.

    Thank you again.

    Thanks, for the info. Personally I have a 8 GB SD card that more than meets my storage needs.

    Just upgraded to 9900 with 512 mb memory which more then enough for me considering I had a curve with 256 mb only had it a few days so still haven't worked out all the tricks so far but have to say I reckon the 9900 is a pretty good phone

    Anytime, bro!

    Everyone has their own storage needs, some BlackBerry users are content with 4GB, 8GB.... in my case, 32GB will do just fine.

    Hello jameshawk1983, the fact that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 has 8GB of internal memory is great, and for some users, that is enough.

    You'll become more familiar with your device as time goes on.

    Keep an eye on this thread, as I will update it with some tips and tricks in the coming future.

    Thank you.
